We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Turkey Lauches War On Islamic State's Worst Enemies - The Kurds

Click here to access article by Billmon from his blog Moon of Alabama.

Billmon provides evidence that the US is providing help to both Turkey and the Kurds, whereas Turkey is now directly attacking the Kurds. He writes:
It seems that the U.S. is now helping the Turkish government, which supports the Islamic State, to target Kurdish positions while at the same time giving air support to the same Kurds against the Islamic State.

Who in Washington came up with such a lunatic policy position and what is the real aim behind it?
I don't think this is a "lunatic policy"--it's only the usual strategy of the Empire and Israel in the Middle East: creating as much chaos as it can by getting Muslims to kill other Muslims.
